I have managed some sleeve knitting this weekend and here is the state of the first sleeve:
The lighting is weird — it looks like the top half of the sleeve is a lighter color than the bottom half. It isn’t. It’s just a trick of the light.

I’ve got two more pattern repeats to go before this sleeve is done.
In great book news . . .
My publisher has told me that my two socks books, Socks From the Toe Up and Toe Up Socks for Every Body, will soon be available in e-book format. They will be available for all e-reading devices, including Kindle, Nook, Sony Readers, PCs, Macs, iPhones, etc. While Random House doesn’t currently sell through the iBookstore, you can use any of the other reader apps on the iPad. They are scheduled to be released at the end of January.

I originally planned to alternate using it with the Wen product, but I have been using it exclusively for the past couple of weeks.
Speaking of hair, it’s been a while since my last haircut:
